It’s Been a While

Wow, it’s been a long time since I last wrote on this blog. I kept on meaning to and then it didn’t happen for whatever reason. I didn’t realise how much time had past. As always, that’s my main aim, to get better at this and not leave such massive gaps. I am writing at least, Time Heals… is coming along nicely. Even if I still don’t like the title and will think of a better one at some point. I’m a little over half way through the novel. I will upload the next chapter in the next couple of days. It’s an important chapter and I want to make sure it’s edited properly and ready to be read.

Other than writing, and work, I’ve nearly finished reading These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas. I was recommended this by someone who read a review I wrote earlier in the year and while it’s taken me a long time to get through it I am enjoying the book. It’s well written and keeps me guessing at what’s coming next. It’s part of a trilogy and I will be reading the following books soon after finishing this one.

This week I went to see A Star Is Born. I was expecting good things, but not that good. It’s definitely one of the best films of the year. I don’t know how it compares to earlier versions, but they’ve been added to my ever growing, to watch list. I’m hoping to go and see Bad Times at the El Royale and First Man soon, both look really good.

I also really enjoyed the new Doctor Who last week. I’ve been a big fan since the 2005 reboot and have gone back and watched a fair bit of the original series. I had little doubt about Jodie Whittaker, but was still surprised at how good she was. I’d forgotten about Peter Capaldi by the end of the episode and wanted to start the next one straight away, which hasn’t happened since David Tennant’s debut.

Venom was also surprisingly good. I wasn’t expecting much at all, and then even less once the reviews came out. It was fun and more enjoyable than most of the DC films. Nothing spectacular but enjoyable and I look forward to the sequel.

The next chapter of Time Heals… will be uploaded as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading,
